Oscar winning film Argo disses the British (in fact, the English) - as does every other film that's come out of Hollywood in recent years.
I don't care how good it is. I'm not going to watch it.
The same too with Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan, Rambo III, The Hurt Locker...
Ben Afleck comes out with some lame reason "...to keep tension in the film." whereas I think the truth is more likely to be that high powered backers include a clause whereby the Brits must be bashed in every film as part of the contract.
"Special relationship " I think not.
